Capitol Report: Trump backtracks on Obama as ISIS founder | Republican donors direct big money down ballot

Donald Trump says he was being sarcastic when he made controversial statements about President Barack Obama and the terrorist group ISIS.

After saying multiple times that Obama was the “founder” of ISIS, the Republican presidential nominee backtracked in a tweet early Friday morning. “They don’t get sarcasm?” Trump asked about CNN, which he said has reported “so seriously” on his linking Obama and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton to the group.

Trump’s assertion he was just joking wasn’t the first time he’s used that defense. Last month, he also said he was being sarcastic after inviting Russia to find missing emails from Clinton’s private server.
